It’s Good, Except It Sucks is a movie by movie – and television series by television series – hurtle through the Marvel Cinematic Universe, hosted by Tim Worthington with a series of superpowered guests.
This is the third part of our look at Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. which ran for seven seasons on ABC between 2013 and 2020, and joining Tim for a chat about Phil Coulson and the gang picking up the literal pieces between the movies is quiz expert David Smith. This time they’re focusing on the wild time-hopping genre-switching alternate reality-bending mission to stop history being entirely rewritten by aliens with access to TV Tropes in Series Seven of Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.. What will they find to say about S.H.I.E.L.D.’s Greatest Hits, Peggy Carter’s accidental time-hopping bigamy and the mystery of exactly where Bucky Barnes’ name got to, and what does any of this have to do with The Phil Coulson Broadcast Signal Intrusion Incident? Get listening and find out!
